Taxonomic survey of the Polia (Polia) nebulosa species complex (Noctuidae, Noctuinae, Hadenini) with the description of two new subspecies
The mostly derived Holarctic species-group of Polia is reviewed. It consists of three Palearctic and four Nearctic species. Biogeographical and phylogenetic connections of the species-group are discussed. Lectotype of P. nebulosa askolda is designated. Taxonomic subdivision of P. lama is presented, with the description of two new subspecies: P. lama leucobliterata (Uzbekistan: W. Hissar Mts) and P. lama anthracosparsa (Pakistan: Karakoram Mts). Genital characters of Eurasiatic taxa are described and illustrated.
